St Valentines Day
It all started with a letter from a local community group asking our children to take part in a project in Hillmorton. The Hillmorton and East Rugby Together (HEaRT) community group is for the benefit of all residents in Hillmorton and East Rugby which includes Eastlands. To brighten the friendly bench which is on the Hillmorton Green, they asked all primary schools to send messages of love for everyone to read as they passed by. Our children sent in some lovingly created poems, pictures and letters. 15 were chosen to appear on the bench. Please visit the bench if you are out on your daily exercise, it is truly heartwarming. We will display all the learning around school so we can all 'feel the love.' Thank you to the HEaRT Community group for putting this all together.
One of the poems has been narrated by a member of the community, listen below.
Wow! One our pupils appeared on Coventry and Warwickshire BBC radio on Valentines Day. Press the play button below to listen!
